Molding

Once the mix has reached the correct consistency, spread mixture into either a Plastic OR Silicone Puree Food Mold, once cavities have been filled, cover with lid and then place in freezer.

Heat & Serve

Once frozen take mold tray out of freezer. Turn mold tray over and apply gentle pressure to release frozen food from mold. Place frozen food from directly on to plate and allow to thaw in fridge. Prior to heating, cover plated food appropriately to prevent molded food from drying out e.g metal plate cover, insulated plate cover, heat proof polycarbonate lid. Reheat molded food on plate to desired temperature via microwave (low heat setting, combination oven, convection oven, bain marie under counter hot box). Serve.
